Indiana University Gender Studies Search

The Department of Gender Studies at Indiana University - Bloomington announces a search for one TENURE-TRACK Assistant Professor to begin August 2006. For this position, we seek scholars working in transnational gender studies. We are particularly interested in candidates whose transnational research focuses on the construction of sexualities and genders in their global iterations. The Department invites applications from interdisciplinary feminist scholars who are actively addressing core questions of gender and sexuality through ambitious research agendas and energetic teaching/mentoring on the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants will be expected to assist in the development of the doctorate, teach core Gender Studies courses, and work collectively to develop the Department. Candidates must have prior teaching experience, preferably in Women’s or Gender Studies and must have their PhD by August 2006.

The Department is in an extraordinary period of growth and we are now poised to inaugurate the first doctorate in Gender Studies in the nation. We anticipate admitting the first cohort of doctoral candidates in the fall of 2006. The Department currently offers a Bachelor of Arts, an undergraduate minor, and a PhD minor in Gender Studies. At present, our faculty includes seven full-time (100%) positions, and eight jointly-appointed lines. Over twenty-five additional faculty at Indiana University are affiliated with the Department and we work closely with other units on campus, most notably the Kinsey Institute for Research on Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. Our faculty has remarkable breadth and we envision a unique doctoral program focusing on sexuality and the body as seen through multiple lenses, including culture/media, social structural/political economic, medical/scientific, and transnational/comparative perspectives. We seek to complement our departmental strengths in the study of sexualities; bodies and their technologization and medicalization; representation and cultural production; and feminist epistemologies.

Indiana University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and is committed to employing faculty who will enhance the rich diversity of our academic community.

Please submit a letter of interest, detailing research agendas as well as teaching experience and philosophy, along with a CV and names, addresses, e-mails, and phone numbers of three references (please do not have references sent unless requested) by October 15, 2005 to the following address:

Prof. Suzanna Walters
Chairperson, Search Committee
Indiana University, Department of Gender Studies
